The Astrology Of Beauty – What Your Venus Sign Says About You

If you’re a Virgo that doesn’t like washing your hair, or a Leo who doesn’t dig a bright lip, blame your Venus sign…

In astrology your Venus sign describes your aesthetic and overall style – including your approach to beauty. What’s really interesting, is that it’s often different to your sun sign (the sign you read for your horoscope). Understanding your Venus sign offers insight into the way you ‘do’ beauty, what brings you pleasure and generally all things aesthetic. It’s the perfect starting point if you’re looking for fresh inspiration or wanting to understand yourself better. To find your Venus sign, check the chart tab on Co-Star or use an online chart generator (we like astro.com).

VENUS IN ARIES

You’re all about maximum impact in minimum time. Fast, effective and standout are essential qualities for your favourite products. You want to make an entrance, but you don’t want to mess around with anything too fiddly. Skip the 20-step skincare routine (you’ll never have the patience to stick with it) and focus on one standout look like a flawless matte lip or perfectly bronzed skin.

VENUS IN TAURUS

As the beauty junkie of the zodiac, you’re probably on a first-name basis with the team at your local Mecca. Scent is your absolute non-negotiable. If something doesn’t smell good, it’s a hard no. Ditto quality. You’d rather splurge on a couple of high-end products than go nuts at Priceline, although let’s be honest, you’ll happily do both.

VENUS IN GEMINI

Newer, faster, better is your beauty MO. You’re all about trying the latest and greatest products and will give anything a go once. Your tireless search for the NBT means your bathroom cabinet is usually filled with half-used products; no sooner do you fall for one than you’re onto the next one.

VENUS IN CANCER

You live for a night in with a facemask, all the better if there’s a long, hot bath involved. Soft, feminine flourishes in fragrance and makeup are your go-to. Ditto any trends or brands that pays homage to vintage styles or iconic beauty looks (think: Audrey Hepburn and Brigitte Bardot).

VENUS IN LEO

Your beauty style is a little bit extra; as far as you’re concerned, if you’re not being noticed, you’re not doing it right. For you beauty is all about having a good time – whether that’s organising a spa weekend with the girls or getting ready with friends before a night out. Yes, it’s beauty, but also, make it fun.

VENUS IN VIRGO

You’d take flawless skin over a perfect winged eye any day of the week (although tbh, you can nail both). Transforming everyday routines into delicious rituals is your beauty special sauce. You’re also a big fan of beauty from the inside out and may know more about gut health than the Beauty Chef herself.

VENUS IN LIBRA

You know your best angles and have custom VSCO settings on lock. When it comes to treating yourself, scented candles are your weakness. You never met a Diptyque candle you didn’t like. You’ll lash out on luxury products, but the packaging also needs to be on point; if the font’s a little funky, it’s not for you.

VENUS IN SCORPIO

You have a very firm idea of what you like (and what you don’t) and rarely stray from your tried-and-true products. Skincare with active ingredients that get to the root of the problem are your jam. In the privacy of your own home, nothing beats the satisfaction of popping a spot.

VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS

For you, if it feels good, it’s never a bad idea. “Treat yourself” is your beauty mantra, and when you find something you like, you’ve been known to buy 10. You have an adventurous streak too and may be known for experimenting – nail art, hair or eye makeup – life’s too short for neutrals.

VENUS IN CAPRICORN

“You get what you pay for” is your beauty mantra and you’re definitely not afraid to splurge on your go-tos, but you’d rather quality over quantity. You take your time getting onboard new trends but once you’re in, you’re not afraid to commit to a tricky routine if it means long-term results.

VENUS IN AQUARIUS

You’re a beauty maverick who plays by their own rules. Repurposing products is a favourite past time – gloss as a cheek tint, serum to tame flyaways– if there’s an unconventional way to use something you’ll give it a go. Likewise, skincare based on the latest cutting-edge technology or innovative (weird) makeup products never fail to pique your interest.

VENUS IN PISCES

You’re ALL about beauty…but nothing too rigid. Fresh-from-the-ocean hair, looks-like-second-day smoky eyes, you love anything soft and whimsical so long as the process to get it doesn’t feel too structured. Brand-wise, you always favour companies who support the community and value sustainability.
